I'm considering this lens for my Sony a6600 (APS-C) -- would you recommend this lens in light of the crop and magnification factors alongside the min. focusing distance?
Asked by: Alicia
For Sony Full Frame and Crop users, this is a great choice for a macro lens. Make sure you turn on Focus Peaking in your settings and it is a breeze.
